The Boeing 727, struggled to gain altitude before it was free of the runway and in shocking footage, can be seen to plough back down into a neighbouring field, according to unconfirmed reports.

Columbia’s Civil Aviation agency have reported there were six people travelling at the time, consisting of the pilot, co-pilot and crew.

Scarily, this is the second plane crash to have taken place in the last month on Colombian turf.
